      Give Us A Fake

      The Case Against John Stossel

      By Kenneth Cook

      On Friday, February 4, 2000, ABC News's highly rated
      magazine program "20/20" broadcast a devastating report that
      created an uproar in the rapidly growing, $6 billion organic
      food industry. Unfortunately, according to an Environmental
      Working Group (EWG) investigation, correspondent John Stossel
      based his report on test results that were fabricated in one
      instance and badly distorted in another. The falsified
      scientific evidence undermines the truth of the entire story:

      Stossel Reprimanded But Not Fired

      After six months of stone-walling, ABC News confirmed
      an Environmental Working Group (EWG) allegation that the
      network did not conduct pesticide tests for a special 20/20
      investigation by correspondent John Stossel that was harshly
      critical of organic food. ABC has announced that the producer
      will be suspended for a month and Stossel 'reprimanded.'

      That's not enough! Stossel lied and threatened an entire
      industry by disseminating false and damaging information.
      He should be fired for violating the most basic ethical
      standards of journalism:
